Bollywood actress Maanvi Gagroo has made a shocking revelation regarding casting-couch. The popular web-series actor has said that a producer had asked her to ‘compromise’. Maanvi said the web-show producer had offered her a bigger budget in return. Maanvi Gagroo has acted in popular web-series like Four More Shots Please.
In an interview to Koimoi, a Bollywood portal, Gagroo recounted how she got a disturbing phone call by a producer.
She said, “A year ago, I got a call from a random unknown number. They were like ‘we’re doing a web series and we wanted to cast you.’ They told me the budget and I said, ‘no, this is too less and why are we talking about the budget? Tell me the script, only if I’m interested and you are interested in roping me, we can discuss money, dates and all’”.
When Maanvi told the producer that the budget was too less, he just tripled it. He then said to Gagroo, ‘I can give you this much also, but you’ll have to compromise’”.
The actress further said, “I was hearing these words of ‘compromise’ after 7-8 years. Suddenly I don’t know what triggered me, I started abusing him. Told him, ‘you keep the phone, how dare you? I’ll complain to the police.’ I was really mad because in this pro imposed #MeToo era, I was baffled at how things like this still happen”.
Maanvi Gagroo’s upcoming venture is the second season of the web series Four More Shots Please. The series features Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari and Bani J.
